Management Principal Importance of Management Functions in a business Effective management and leadership involve creative problem solving, motivating employees and making sure the organization accomplishes objectives and goals. There are four functions of management and leadership: planning, organizing, leading and controlling. These functions separate the management process from other business functions such as marketing, accounting and finance.
Planning
The planning function of management controls all the planning that allows the organization to run smoothly. Planning involves defining a goal and determining the most effective course of action needed to reach that goal. Typically, planning involves flexibility, as the planner must coordinate with all levels of management and leadership in the organization
Organizing
The organizing function of leadership controls the overall structure of the company. The organizational structure is the foundation of a company; without this structure, the day-to-day operation of the business becomes difficult and unsuccessful. Organizing involves designating tasks and responsibilities to employees with the specific skill sets needed to complete the tasks. Organizing also involves developing the organizational structure and chain of command within the company.
Leading
The third function of management is leading. In this step, Melissa spends time connecting with her employees on an interpersonal level. This goes beyond simply managing tasks; rather, it involves communicating, motivating, inspiring, and encouraging employees towards a higher level of productivity. Not all managers are leaders. An employee will follow the directions of a manager because they have to, but an employee will voluntarily follow the directions of a leader because they believe in who he or she is as a person, what he or she stands for, and for the…...

Stock Market Report

...Stock Market Report The first step to building my portfolio was defining my objectives. What exactly did I want to achieve by participating in this game? Keeping in mind that many financial analysts fail to beat the S&P 500, I realized that my chances of beating the market were slim. If “professionals” have difficulty choosing the right stocks, then chances are I will to. In short, I decided that taking a gamble and investing in risky stocks to win the game was probably a futile strategy. The technical reason for why I, or any other person for that matter, cannot beat the markets is that markets are mostly efficient. Much of what I know about a company is probably public information so it is already reflected in that company’s stock price. For example, many people view Apple as a company with much potential for growth. As a result, the demand for its stock is already very great; so great that some say the demand for the company can’t go any higher. If I were to buy Apple, I must find a reason for why the public is undervaluing it; simply saying the iPhone is selling off the charts won’t work since everyone already knows that. With this in mind, I focused on buying stocks that I was familiar with and could at least make a reasonable case as to why they were undervalued. I decided to settle on buying a group of stocks and keeping them until the end of the game. In fact, since I was investing for the long term, I pushed myself to rarely look at my holdings in order to......

I enjoy bringing something entirely original into existence, this might be inform of a product, marketing plan, unique service delivery and especially entrepreneurial work. An opportunity to be creative in any aspect of my work as a manger, executive or an individual contributor in a team is very important part of my work satisfaction. Although highly creative work can be found is almost any industry, and a major part of entrepreneurial work. Still, I prefer to work in an industry in which creativity is an integral part of the definition of the core product or service e.g. advertising and entertainment although entrepreneurship is the best match for me to express this interest. I also enjoy using mathematical analysis to solve problems. Although, this might seem divergent to the above stated......

Super Market

...first thing to assault the nose when you are by them is the sheer cold. Then I reached a screaming child. A single mother juggled between a sleeping baby in a pram, scribbling onto her shopping list and shushing a screaming toddler, clinging to the side of the trolley like his life depended on it. The bags under the mother’s eyes showed she’d had many sleepless nights. I continued on. The screaming stopped. Taking a glance back I saw the toddler now grinning in silence, sucking on the dummy his mother had just given him. I was confronted with the sight of flickering florescent lights, which obviously was supposed to be changed. The rushing and frantic families who were trying to get ingredients for their late dinner were destroying the super market. A cool, air-conditioned breeze brushed across my face. The supermarket was packed with people and the sound of chatting and the squeaking of trolley wheels filled the shop. Taking a step forward, I focused on the display in front of me. A row of fruit and vegetables lined the shelves; an array of colours that could put a rainbow to shame. The scent of oranges and bananas and many more tempted me to indulge deeper into the shop and the aisles beyond. The tills could be heard furiously beeping as they rushed through the impatient customers. CRASH! The trolleys collided together like a fist hitting a face. The sound loomed over TESCO and stayed until everyone rushed again....

Super Market Survey

...size and even squeezable. The Hidden Valley Ranch Light was slightly above eye level and there was only one left in quantity. Further down and to the right was the Fat Free. Both products were $2.98. Compositionally, the Light and Fat Free had similar ingredients but Fat Free had a significant amount of more preservatives and synthetic ingredients. The Light Ranch had 7 grams of fat, 3 grams of carbohydrates, and 1 gram of protein. The Light Ranch uses fat replacers to eliminate fat. The Fat Free Ranch had 0 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbohydrates, and 0 grams of protein and both types were gluten free. The target customer for this product would be someone who has suffered a heart attack and should watch their fat intake, or even someone managing their weight. I dislike this product because of the additives. MIO FIT VS. MIO: The next product that I stumbled upon in Wal-Mart was MiO, liquid water enhancers. MiO is a new product introduced in the past year or so that allows you to enhance the flavor of your water with a flavored liquid. Just recently they came out with a new product called MiO FIT. Both types of products are compositionally altered with artificial sweeteners called sucralose. The FIT contained more sodium content and salt. MiO products took up most of the shelves in the water enhancer section. They were all eye level to the consumer. MiO is for any consumer who wants to enhance the taste of their water and the FIT version could be for someone who wanted the......

Reed Super Market

...Action Plan for Reed’s Growth Background: Meredith Collins, VP of Marketing, Reed, needs a plan for 2011 to execute to grow its current market share from 14% to 16%. Margins for error are negligible as competition has intensified in every segment and current economic conditions aren’t looking good. Recommendations for Growth: Stop the dollar special for each week: 1st step is to stop the dollar special promotion immediately. This is not consistent with the brand equity and positioning built over the years. It’s resulting in net operating loss of 76% on each discounted item and overall decreased the net operating profit for 2010 to 0.4% only. Moreover, this promotional activity is polluting the message for regular consumers, considering that some of the dollar stores are located nearby. Increase Sales Target: To increase the current market share to 16%, sales target is set to 775Mn for 2011. It’s an increase of 95Mn. from 2010, on the assumption that total market size (4.74Bn) remains same. Focus and Maintain current Target Segment and Increase the Wallet Share: Continue focusing on the current target segment of affluent and older customers with smaller household size. Their wallet share is 8.93% only as compared to average supermarket customer’s wallet share of 10.0%. Wallet share of Reed customers will be increased by at least 1% which will result in additional revenue of 79Mn/year. Maintain current Brand Positioning: Maintain current brand positioning by......

Jads Stock Market Report

...members who made significant returns on investment. There were some stocks trades which resulted in high gains whilst there were others which incurred losses from the moment of purchase until they were sold. The group noticed that the trading environment relied heavily on both internal and external news surrounding the companies which traded on the stock market and as a result, constant monitoring of the financial news was required to keep adequately abreast in an effort to facilitate financial decisions in a timely manner. JADSjanella: * Best stock bought: Hewlett Packard(HPQ),although the stock price has been decreased from $27.94 to $25.39 this has been due to the fact that most of the leaders in the sector gave up their gains for the thanksgiving holiday. * Worst stock bought: The worst stock was Texas Instrument (TXN), because it fluctuates frequently as a result it had to be monitored frequently. The stock fell drastically over the past few weeks when compared to the price it was about one month ago. What I have learnt overall: 1. to make money on the stock market you have to monitor the market regularly 2. read the financial news so that you will have an idea of which stock would fall or rise 3. when going to purchase a stock look at the graph so that you will have an indication of the performance of the stock in the past 4. with the sell short method you made a lot of money JADSandrine: Stocks were mainly purchased in the energy......
